Richey Hackett - An Introduction to Richey Hackett [2010]


Published May 30, 2010
Topics rock, pop


VULP-0015 is a compilation of this UK-based independent artist (in every sense of the term, handling all of the songwriting, instrumentation, vocals, recording, and producing of his works), Richey Hackett, who has somehow been flying under the radar since 2007. Vulpiano Records is, proudly, releasing a compilation of the best songs from his catalog, An Introduction to Richey Hackett. The closing remark on his MySpace profile - "Pop music is dead. And I have come to revive it. Enjoy." sums up much of his mission; the creation of catchy tunes need not leave out thoughtful lyricism, which has become increasingly abundant in his works over time. His wide array of fabulous influences have certainly lent a hand in shaping him as an artist, and I was pleased to see Elvis Costello amongst them, as that's who I was reminded of when hearing Sixteen particularly, a kindred spirit in pop sensibility surely. An Introduction to... is a monument to his changes and growth over time, my favorites of the lot being Wrath (optimistic instrumentation blended with sentiments of distress), Empty Out the Room (a plodding and dark piece with some rather memorable guitar bits), and the pseudo-folksy, chugga-chugga rhythm Coming Home. His whole catalog is available for free on Last.fm, with another album coming down the pike in summer 2010.
